85-10n-52: St George's Hotel, Selby St, 1985 - Hessle Rd
In the background
of this image, on the side of one of the more recent houses you can see
the image of a game of rugby league in the brickwork. You see this if you
look out to the right as your train nears Hull, in Farnella Close off of
Selby St. The picture was taken on Selby St and the pub on the corner of
St George's Rd is the nineteenth century St George's Hotel.
The nearer house has been demolished and the area became part of the pub
garden. The pub became noted for its drag acts when the landlord was female
impersonater Bobby Mandrell, "Hull's Most Glamorous Landlady". It closed
in 2013, but was reopened in 2016 and shortly after changed its name to
the Loud Mouth Count Hotel.
Images on this site are arranged into rough areas by location as in my book 'Still Occupied', available on Blurb. Eventually this site will contain all the images in that book and more.
